Tips and Prevention for Bad Backs

May 6, 2008
Back pain has been one of the longest illnesses around without a cure or any form of treatment that can really help, the only alternative would be to have an operation.

There are creams and lotions you can get for a bad back which will help cut the pain down slightly but not completely cure it. The facts given below are tips you should use to prevent a bad back. There are some underlying conditions such as
pulled muscles which are commonly a complained reason as the cause of back pain, as are muscle imbalances. Pain injurys often remain as long as the muscle imbalances persist. Muscle imbalances cause a mechanical problem with the skeleton, building up pressure at points along the spine, which causes the pain.

Although there are not many treatments that can satisfy back pain there is a lot of things that you can do to prevent it. For example instead of sitting on chairs that feel like wood either at home or at the office go and find a chair that will be comfortable and not put any strains on your back, especially if you have a desk job and are sitting down for most of the day. There are now chairs that are available such as ergonomic chairs, these chairs will not only help your back but will also help your whole posture, the way in how the chairs achieve this is in the science that it is created. There are also additional ways in which you can prevent back pain such as good quality beds, some people will lay on a bed with broken springs and about 10 years old and then complain that they have a bad back.

Another cause of acute low back pain is an illness called meniscoid occlusion. When membraes become pinched or trapped sudden severe pain will appear in the lower back region. The pinching causes membranes to become inflamed, which eventually causes very severe pain. The main symptoms include severe low back pain that may be accompanied by muscle spasm, pain with walking, concentration of pain to one side, but no radiating pain down buttock and leg. Relief can be felt by bending forward,and exacerbated with bending backward.

Whichever symptoms you may have the best thing to remember is to try a few home remedies, if these continue not to relieve pain with in a few days you should visit a doctor or consultant as there may be a need for surgery.
